Making motorcycles out of naked ladies

Dailies, Galleries -


Tasked with promoting this season’s round of the (very domestic) International Motorcycle Show, ad agency IdeaBrand came up with the idea of making motorcycles out of people. Flexible female people, to be exact. A simple idea with complicated execution. Each bike required multiple Yoga instructors, dancers and aerialists, plus makeup artists and the usual photo circus. Each bike took up to 15 hours of work to create, with the models holding the poses for up to two minutes.

Here’s a breakdown of the work required:

- The models at the shoot were dancers, yoga instructors, aerialists and circus performers
- Number of hours each bike shot took from beginning to end:
Harley: 15 hours
Ducati: 18 hours
KTM: 13.5 hours
- Number of air brushers on set: 8
- Number of massage therapists on set: 2
- Maximum amount of time a motorcycle pose was held: 2 minutes
- Minimum: less than 10 seconds
- Hours of behind-the-scenes video footage: 30

The show itself starts next month in Atlanta, before touring around the country. You can find out more at

    Could we have a ‘Wat Dat Is?’ with this as well, just maybe in regards to the mechanisms of a woman’s mind?

    I think it would coincide well with the irrational mindset and logic of most women.

    Looks like a pro advertising shoot all right. A handful of talented people busting their asses for 14hrs every day and a whole gang of others that sit around on their phones & laptops shovelling up the hospitality.

    It’s *hard* to make tepid photos of a gaggle of naked fit females.
